From the experience of your dentist to the cost of your procedure, we encourage you to look at every detail and learn as much as you can about dental implants before choosing a dentist. Here are 10 things to consider before getting a dental implant.
To begin the implant process, a metal post is surgically positioned into the jaw. This post will act as a permanent “root” for the implanted tooth. Once it is in place and the surrounding bone and tissue have healed, the restoration is completed with a beautiful crown that looks, acts and feels like a natural tooth.
